Ok, so this should be an AprilFavorites post, but alas, I wrote a March Favorites post back at the end of March and justmanaged to get pictures taken for it. Instead of letting the post go to waste – there are some good things in here! – I’m posting it now…as originally written. Hopefully there will be more on April Favorites next week. So now, take yourself back to the beginning of April and enjoy the March Favorites ride….
Wow, did March fly by! I feel like I was working on this post for February just a week ago, but I’ve actually had 2 non-Favorites posts since then! Miracles can happen. 😄 I feel like I may have a fair amount to get through, so I’m not gonna drag this out. I have mostly makeup favorites, but there’s also a “moment” if you will. We’ll get there…and if you saw my Insta Stories that day, you may already be guessing what it is. 😉 It was a good month on the beauty front, so let’s just get to the best products from March!
Today we have a weird one to review. Perhaps one of the strangest makeup products I’ve ever encountered. Keep in mind though that strange and weird do not equal bad. 😉 In fact, sometimes it may be that great innovation you never knew you needed. What is today’s mystery product that could be such a ground-breaker? It’s the BECCA Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder. So, is it a fantastic new beauty revolution, or a gimmicky waste of money? Time to find out! 😉
It’s the second most wonderful time of the year for those of us with massive Sephora addictions! 😝 That’s right! The Sephora VIB Sale is almost here!!! I thought I would go through some of my favorite cruelty free products available at Sephora to give you a few recommendations while considering what new goodies to pick up this go-round. Real quick, the details as I understand them are that the sale runs from April 18th through the 24th for VIB Rouge members and your discount will be 15% off of everything as many times as you choose to shop in that time frame! Similarly, VIB member will receive 15% off between April 19th and 24th, while Beauty Insiders will be getting 10% off from April 20th through April 23rd. If you’re one of these lucky Sephora Insider members, you should receive a card in the mail as well as a code in your email that can be used over and over again during the above mentioned dates! There has also been some fantastic cruelty free news: Tashina from Logical Harmony has confirmed that Smashbox and Marc Jacobs Beauty (not the fragrances) have been added to her cruelty free list (Stila‘s back too)!!! Discounts and new brands and cruelty free goodness, oh my! 😜 Enough silliness, let’s get to the recommendations (linked to reviews if I have one). 😉
Ahhhhh!!! It’s that time of year again! Yup, Sephora’s annual VIB / VIB Rouge 20% Off Sale! If you’re a Rouge member, you are probably aware that the sale just began for you (code “20ROUGE”)! ? For Rouge members, the sale runs from November 4-7, while VIB members get a go at the sale from November 11-14 (code “20VIB”). Given this always exciting event, I thought I would share some of my cruelty free recommendations with you today! So let’s get started as this could become rather lengthy. ?
Well, June has ended and we all know what that means! June Favorites time!!! 🙂 I don’t feel like I have a whole lot to talk about this month because it’s been a rather relaxed month thanks to a bruised tail bone, and I’ve mostly been reaching for the same old same old products. But there are a few stand-outs to discuss this month and we all know that I can make that go on for hours! 😉 Strange fact – I’m usually not very chatty in person. Shocking, I know! Since I tend toward novellas for the blog, let’s just get into it! 🙂
If you’re like me and read a lot of beauty blogs or watch a lot of YouTube beauty videos, you surely have noticed that certain products are mentioned over and over and over again. They get a lot of buzz! One always wonders if those products are really as good as they seem, or if there’s just some kind of mob mentality keeping everyone enamored with the same so-so products. Always curious about the next best thing, I often find myself trying those “it” products of the moment just to see if they’re really everything my mind has made them out to be. Well, today we’re going to go through five of those very products that do indeed live up to every glowing review, each overly enthusiastic video and even, of all things, most of the products’ own claims! 🙂 Without further ado, I bring you 5 Cruelty Free Products WORTH the Hype!
